Our hugely popular Terrace, London’s largest beer garden, is back!
This unique space offers unbeatable, panoramic views across London, can welcome 400 people at any one time and was proclaimed “The best thing to happen in 2020” by Time Out. And what’s more, this year we’ve scrapped the entrance fee which means grabbing a table at The Terrace is entirely free!
Some of London’s hottest street food vendors are on rotation throughout the spring / summer featuring new faces as well as some old favourites including Browski Burger and Last Night A Vegan Saved My Life.
There is of course a large, well-stocked bar, so you can catch up with your nearest and dearest and enjoy your favourite tipple or two (think craft beers, prosecco, cocktails etc). Tables of up to six are available to book for up to 3.5 hour sessions from 12.30pm seven days a week. Table service and a range of social distancing protocols are in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit.
An exciting programme of entertainment is also being planned for the spring and summer. It includes music from major artists, alfresco comedy nights featuring some of the biggest names on the London scene and the best buskers from the capital and beyond providing soothing tunes. There will also be StrEATlife, Ally Pally’s annual street food event, alongside pop-up and guest food offerings. Stay tuned for all the info, and plenty of surprises too. (If you go to book on a particular date and it’s not available, that’s because we’re planning to announce an event on that very day…)
The health and safety of our customers and team is really important so we’ve created an environment that is safe for social distancing and follows strict hygiene protocols. This includes enhanced cleaning, hand sanitiser units and table-service only for a maximum booking of six people up to 17 May and eight people after 17 May. Plus we’ve developed the Ally Pally Food & Drink app so there’s no need for cash or contact with anyone from outside of your group.
Tables are available for six people up until 17 May and eight people after 17 May. Babes in arms, children in pushchairs and individuals in wheelchairs do not count towards this total (as long as there are only two households in any party exceeding six people up until 17 May). For bookings of more than eight people, please contact email@example.com.
You must remain seated when eating or drinking at The Terrace.
Your session time is for a maximum of 3.5 hours for any party size. Please note that we will hold your table for 15 minutes before offering it to our waiting list. When booking we ask for your card details to guarantee the reservation – a £5 per guest charge will be deducted only if you are a ‘no show’. If you would like to cancel the table then you can do so, free of charge, up to 24 hours ahead of your booking.
The Terrace is a large outdoor seating area with some tables undercover. These tables will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be guaranteed.
Street food traders will be on rotation throughout the week. Please check this page for weekly line-ups.
All food and drink at The Terrace are ordered through a mobile app so please ensure that a member of your party has a smartphone. No transactions will be taken other than through the app.
